Defending a medical malpractice case hinges on building a strong case that demonstrates that the complaining patient cannot prove that it is more likely than not that you failed to perform your duties up to the accepted standard of care, or that any failure to do so caused him or her harm. Defending allegations of fault requires consultation with experts on medical standards of care, which can include other doctors and medical professionals, pathologists, or legal bioethicists. At Esp Kreuzer Cores LLP, we consult with credible and qualified experts when assessing your case and when presenting your defense at trial.

Working with insurance companies for hospitals, doctors, patients, and other parties involved, we evaluate the value of the claim, the projected increase in your malpractice insurance rates, the likely outcome in the case, and other factors to help you determine your most favorable course of action.

Once your decision about how best to proceed is made, we seek to negotiate fair settlements or defend you in litigation. Whether you are a surgeon, RN, LPN, CNA, physical therapist, cytotechnologist, and other healthcare provider, you have the right to protection from the heavy damage a medical malpractice claim can do to your professional reputation, job prospects, insurance rates, and personal assets.
